Although Arsenal could still qualify for Champions League football next season on goal difference with the help of some convoluted maths — a 2-2 draw for the Gunners against Everton and Liverpool losing 2-0 at home to Middlesbrough would do it — realistically Arsène Wenger's side simply must win.
They may have an FA Cup final with champions Chelsea just six days later, but Wenger will field a full strength side against the Toffees on Sunday in order to secure the three points they need, as well as maybe bang in the goals that could see them achieve the unlikely feat of pipping third place Manchester City.

With no new fresh injury concerns for the north London club, expect to see them line up in a similar way to in their last four matches — a 3-4-3 system spearheaded by one of either Olivier Giroud or Danny Welbeck. Over the last few weeks Wenger has alternated between Giroud and Welbeck, but we anticipate the Frenchman getting the nod for this one.
A potential alternative would be to have Alexis Sánchez lead the line, with Mesut Özil and Theo Walcott in support.
The match on Sunday could very well be, if the Arsenal transfer rumours are to be believed, Sánchez' and Özil's swansong at the Emirates. The club's supporters will be hoping it is one to remember.
